Linköping, Sweden – December 12, 2017 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) has implemented its IT solution for breast imaging at St Marks Breast Centre in New Zealand. With Sectra’s comprehensive solution, the radiologists at St Marks Breast Centre now have full access to all images and tools from a single workstation login.
“With Sectra’s solution we are able to read all types of radiology images, such as mammograms, MRI, and tomosynthesis, all from a single workstation,” says Debbie Van Ryswyk, General Manager at St Marks Breast Centre. “This means that we get a comprehensive solution that provides us with a full patient overview.

The solution is sold as a service and includes migration of 80,000 studies from St Marks Breast Centre’s previous system into the Sectra solution.
